Subject: FTE Pre48 - flathead year

Hi folks, Would anyone know how I can identify what year my flathead is?
It is in my 47 pickup however I have a sneaking suspicion that it is a 48 or
49 motor. I seem to remember something about the water pump location and
head bolt caps vs. bolts being different.
Thanks in
advance,

Pat

Subject: FTE Pre48 - alternator bracket for flathead

Does anyone know a supplier for a bracket to install an alternator on a
flathead???
I am also wishing to install a disc brake conversion on my 47 pickup
(retaining the stock front suspension) Does anyone know of a good supplier
they have used? I am aware of a few, I am just not sure which one to deal
with. Thanks in advance.
Pat

The 42 to 47 motor may be identified by a "59A-B" cast into the head, also
a "59" cast on the bell housing, the water connections to the heads are
halfway back on the heads and cast as part of the heads, and the
distributor is on the front of the engine. The 48-53 motor (used from 49
to 53 in the cars) is referred to an 8BA engine (many of the parts had an
8BA prefix on the number) and can be recognized because the water outlet
connections are bolted onto the front of the head on each side of the
engine, and the dist is on the side of the engine at the front.
If you cannot recognise it from this it is a pre 42 engine and you will
need to get me the numbers cast on the back of the block, and count the
number of head bolts (21 bolts for pre 39 and 24 bolts for 39 and later).
Regards,
Roger Meier

The water pumps will be in the same place. The most obvious indications are
where the hoses from the heads to the radiator are. Between 1937 and 1948
they come out of the middle of the head. 1949-1952 they are at the front of
the head. Also, before 1949 the distributor was right on the camshaft while
in 1949 and later the distributor was connected by a shaft and should be
visible by the passenger side head.

I got my alternator bracket from Hot Rod & Custom Supply. I've also had
good success with ordering stuff from Speedway Motors and also Red's
Headers.
